(1) "Lest secret information of the Allied moves be smuggled into neutral Eire by Axis agents, Yank and British patrols are on the double alert on the border of North Ireland, Ulster and Eire. The innocent native folk cheerfully produce their identifications, amid the rustic beauty of their quiet countryside." (2) Bombs fail to crack Cassino "2,500 Tons of Bombs on Cassino (These historic pictures will be studied by military students for generations to come) Stubborn Germans are so strongly entrenched in fortress city of Cassino that the Allies turn 550 huge bombers loose on a target area measuring 1,400 yds. by 410 yds. , the heart of the city. Stick after stick of gigantic bombs fall into the area, and debris flies sky high. The surface town is reduced to rubble. Then more bombers roar over, and reduce it to powder. But the Germans went deeper into their caves and successfully resisted Allied infantry when the bombings ceased. Impressive services are held at American graves, and finis is not written to the Cassino action yet." (partial newsreel)
